Disable Caps Lock

If you find yourself pressing the Caps Lock key accidentally as much as I do, note that you can disable it entirely in Mac OS X. Open the Keyboard & Mouse preference pane, click the Modifier Keys button, and in the dialog that appears, select No Action from the Caps Lock pop-up menu. You could remap it to another modifier instead, but that might make using differently configured Macs more difficult.

We very much appreciates the email condolences we've received in regard to Tonya's neck injury, and we'd especially like to thank Martin Stoermer of the University of Queensland in Australia for collecting get-well messages from lots of wonderful people on several mailing lists. The combined email get-well card raised Tonya's spirits, and we'd like to offer it as an counter example whenever someone starts ranting about how unpleasant the Internet can be. Again, thanks so much for the kind words. [ACE]
